 Sandy, Utah—A team that included three Beehive Science and Technology students has advanced to the FIRST (an acronym for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) LEGO League World Festival Competition to be held in Houston April 17 through 20.

     In order to participate in the World Festival Competition, the Bionic Porcupines team had to move through a series of local competitions that culminated at the Utah First Lego League at Southern Utah University on Feb. 16.  The Bionic Porcupines won the Champion’s Award and first place in the robot game during the event.  This will be the second year in a row that the Bionic Porcupines have gone to the World Festival Competition.

     Bionic Porcupines team members from Beehive are Allison Drennan, Kassie Holt and Timothy Holt.  Also on the team are Mount Jordan’s Adria Brooks and Midvale Middle School’s Eric Snaufer and Andrew Wan.  This team is coached by Annie Drennan, Mark Snaufer and Ben Holt.  In order to help pay for the upcoming trip to Houston, a GoFundMe page has been set up at https://www.gofundme.com/bionic-porcupines-2019-world-fll-event .
